jersey, massachusetts and maryland. chris lawrence has been following the story. he's at the pentagon this morning. chris, take us throughhese hearings. what will happen? >> this is all basically, carol, setting up what will be allowed when these men eventually do go to trial. one of the things to concentrate on today and as this goes on is what the defendants and their lawyers will be allowed to talk about and say. specifically in regards to torture. the lawyers, the defense lawyers want to be able to talk about their clients and have their clients talk about publicly some of the things they were subjected to while they were being held. the government does not want that information released publicly because they say it compromises some cia interrogation practices and would jeopardyize national security. expect that to be a very big focus. even the aclu is going to weigh in on this today. again, remember, all of this originally was scheded for years ago. but president obama stopped that trial short when he was trying to move all of this to a federal court in new york as part of his pl
strike on iran. these exercises may help nettth. >> all right. chris lawrence at the pentagon. thanks very much. let's dig deeper into this. david sanger is here. he's the author of the book "confront and conceal." an excellent book indeed. >> thanks for having me. >> what do you make of the timing, a thousand u.s. troops in israel for these exercises. >> well, this was supposed to happen back in the spring. it did get put off but the timing is a happy consequence dense for both president obama and for prime minute ter netanyahu. romney is likely to repeat his line that the president is willing to have die light between himself and israel. >> he has also said he threw israel under the bus. >> he has said that. i think these exercises underscore the point. while there is great distance between obama and netanyahu, the u.s. and israel on the security issues have worked together quite closely, as you have heard. not only this, but also the missile defense systems that have been put up. and of course olympic games. the cyber program against iran, which was a joint u.s.-israeli program. yo
, and steve schmidt. lawrence o'donnell will be our man in the spin room tonight. and the one and only chris matthews is at the university of denver, which is the site of tonight's debate. chris, i've been watching you this past hour. i can sense the excitement that you feel, that i feel as well. i mean, it is a big night when these candidates speak at their conventions, but tonight the tv audience for this debate could be almost twice the size as the convention audience. just a huge night. what are each of these guys thinking they need to do tonight? >> well, i think obama's the one i'm focused on, the president. because everybody's been talking about, it's romney's big chance, it's romney's opportunity, blah, blah, blah. suppose obama goes on the attack tonight. suppose he surprises everybody and doesn't play defense. he doesn't try to handle his opponent and clinch, that he really goes and tries to put him away. and i think that's the significanti i significanting question. how does romney deal with the fact that he has no spontaneity? no ability to deal with the unexpected? how does he d
to chris lawrence because, chris, there are all these new reports, they come in as far as what the cia might have known. what are you hearing? >> well, we're hearing some new reports from the ap, brooke, but stuff that cnn has already reported weeks ago. basically that in were indications shortly after this attack that it may not have been spontaneous, that it may have been planned. in fact, a u.s. official is basically saying no one right now is ruling out the idea that some of the attackers may have aspired to attack the consulate, but right now that official is also saying and also telling us there isn't any indication, any intelligence that suggests this attack was preplanned for days or much less weeks before hand. all this comes back to what the obama administration was saying in the days and weeks following the attack, specifically what u.n. ambassador susan rice said on the sunday talk shows when she called this attack spontaneous. apparently she was speaking from sort of a talking points memo that was generated, supposedly just for congress, but then the administration officia
in chris lawrence also standing by and watching what we're about to hear very carefully. obviously afghanistan is a massive issue. the president's policy is to withdraw soldiers by 2014. mitt romney has made comments about how he would view the withdrawal of soldiers and it is somewhat more nuanced, suggesting that he would work more with the generals and the boots on the ground now to assess the situation before making a final decision but we just had a report in the "new york times" within the last week that looked really dire about the situation there, almost as though it is just a failure. it is done. we can't get peace with the taliban and may end up having to lead just like the soviets did in '89. that cannot bode well for the folks that work in your building and listen to what we're hearing from mitt romney today. >> you're talking about the negotiations with the taliban seeming to collapse at least in the short-term, ashley. that depends, the reaction depends on who you talked to in the pentagon and some people were never all that bullish on the talks to begin with and didn
of nuclear enrichment necessary to make a bomb. >> chris lawrence is at the pentagon. good morning, chris. >> that's basically what they're saying publicly is this doesn't have anything to do with iran. the fact that we are working together and we are doing this exercise is a message in and of itself. in other words, there is obviously the context of iran. this exercise was supposed to go on earlier this spring, it was postponed by israel and here it is, you know, literally just a couple weeks before the u.s. presidential election in which governor mitt romney has accused president obama of sort of fracturing the relationship with israeli. well, here you have now just two weeks out the largest exercise of its kind, three weeks, going to cost the u.s. about $30 million, spread out over different sites in israel, europe and the mediterranean. >> i know that many, many viewers probably don't know the united states does this with other countries. how many people are we talking about? >> so far, carol, already about a thousand troops have arrived in israel to start for when these exercises kic
correspondent there, chris lawrence. you have checked your urces. what are they telling you about the weapons? >> well, they're saying that there is indications that some weapons are ending up in the hands of hard liners or jihadists in syria. they say that right now it is extremely hard to try to faction out exactly who is who in syria and that is one of the main problems. the sources tell us that, you know, certain brigades like the lee wa brigade received some aid and arms from syria and qatar while others, the farouk brigade, for example, they consider extremely well armed but they have received some of their weapons from lebanese militant groups. the sources feel it is not all coming directly from saudi arabia and qatar, but it is a growing problem and it is something the state department has been tracking just today. state department spokeswoman victoria newland saying this is something that all nations have to keep a closer eye on, saying they have been tracking the movement of weapons into syria along with some of the nations that are providing a lot more firepower than the u.s. is ri
, involving d.o.d. secretary leon panetta and joint chiefs chairman dempsey. let's go to chris lawrence to see what was discussed. the investigation of benghazi was brought up. what did they say? >> reporter: yeah. they did face questions on whether there was enough security in that mission in benghazi and whether u.s. officials deployed additional forces quickly enough after the attack. chairman dempsey said that the u.s. forces response was alert and responsive. secretary panetta accused those outside the pentagon of, quote, monday morning quarterbacking. >> we quickly responded as general dempsey said in terms of deploying forces to the region. we had fast platoons in the region. we had ships that we had deployed off of libya. and we were prepared to respond to any konstantcontingency. there's a basic principle here that you don't deploy forces in to harm's way without knowing what's going on, without having some realtime information about what's taking place. and as a result of not having that kind of information, the commander who's on the ground or in that area, general hamm, general dem
. this coming after a report that they were warned within 24 hours. let's bring in chris lawrence, what are you learning? >> we're learning from a u.s. intelligence official that yes, there may have been memos or other documents that indicated that it was possible that this was conducted by militants, but that some of the argument reflects a fundamental misunderstanding of how the process works. what i mean by that is this intelligence official is saying it's rare that one stream of intelligence will influence and direct an entire report. they're pooling multiple streams together, and while this theme may have existed, there are other things they were looking at as well. they put out a talking points memo to congress and to administration officials to give them some basis from which to talk about this incident. now the chair of the senate intelligence committee, senator diane feinstein said putting out those talking points may have been a mistake at that time. we're told that at the time when susan rice came out and said this was a spontaneous attack, that the intelligence was shifting undernea
to our pentagon correspondent chris lawrence. chris, what are you learning? >> that while the u.s. has been carefully vetting some of the syrian rebel groups to find these moderates, these so-called moderates are already busy finding partners of their own in the jihadists. an official who has knowledge of the intelligence says that the moderate rebel groups are so desperate for weapons that they're partnering up with the jihadists who are better armed and well-funded. moderate syrian rebels are not getting the weapons they want from the united states. so they're turning more and more to extremists and al qaeda-like groups for help. that's the newest assessment from the chair of the house intelligence committee who told cnn "even rebels we've identified as somebody we could work with have partnered with jihadists because they have their own sources of money and weapons." but the obama administration has stuck to its policy of only arming the rebels with radios and computers. its u.s. allies are giving the real fire power. u.s. officials say they have a good idea which rebel groups are g
. our pentagon correspondent chris lawrence is joining us now with the latest. chris, why do u.s. officials suggest this video may have been staged? >> reporter: well, wolf, our sources tell us there are several reasons, not the least of which is the fact these so-called syrian rebels appear to be wearing afghan style clothing, not the kind we normally see in syria. now, u.s. officials say they cannot say with 100% certainty but they say it's somewhat likely that the american in this video is austin tykes. he's a former marine and had been working overseas as a journalist when he disappeared about six weeks ago. in fact, some of our sources say this video someone looked at clips of jihadists and sort of made up this video. they say normally you would think a group would want to take credit for capturing an american. but in here there's no flag. also it wasn't posted on typical jihadist forums, but facebook and youtube. they don't even make any demands in the video. our sources say jihadists typically make videos like this in a controlled environment, like a studio. not the chao
lawrence reports. >> reporter: round of people filled san francisco's city hall to honor ambassador chris stevens, one of four americans killed last month. friends, family, dignitaries and members of the public came to remember their home town hero. stevens grew up in the bay area and went to college in nearby berkeley. >> he had a lot of friend. >> reporter: the life long bachelor served as a diplomat in the middle east. he worked with rebels who would overthrow moammar gadhafi. george schultz says stevens lost his life serving his country. >> we gather to celebrate the immense accomplishments that this man has made for us. >> reporter: stevens family said they received an outpouring of support from around the world including letters from the libyan people. >> my name is chris ste veps and i'm the new u.s. ambassador to libya. >> reporter: stevens made this video to introduce himself to libyans just four months earlier. his death is at the center of an international investigation. at the memorial service friends and family remember the good times. his younger brother tom said he was a hu
of serious flooding, as far inland at least right now as washington, d.c. chris lawrence is along the city's main point of defense for the waters of the potomac river, talking about the tidal basin. chris, what's going on over there? >> reporter: we're starting to see the winds starting to pick up a lot here. you can definitely see the waves starting to lap here in the tidal basin. if you take a look, an iconic view of washington, d.c., that's the jefferson memorial, with the waters really starting to pick up here. one of the things we've followed throughout the day is the power outages. to give you an idea how quickly things have changed since we've been out here, in just a matter of a couple of hours, it's gone from maybe 9,000 people without power to probably over 60,000 people without power. and even though this is a storm that is affecting mostly the east coast, as this storm pushes up the coast, the people responding are coming from all over the country. some of the area companies here have been polling workers from texas, alabama, mississippi, louisiana, areas that have had their ow
panetta is reporting about the deadly attack in benghazi, libya. >> let's bring in chris lawrence on this. he offered more information on why the u.s. military did not step in. what are you hearing? >> secretary panetta said they did consider sending troops into the situation, but bottom line, they did not have enough information. in some of his most expansive comments yet on benghazi in the situation, they had ships off the coast of libya, but, ultimately, that this attack only lasted a few hours and by the time u.s. officials had figured out exactly what was happening, it was over. >> basic principle is that you don't supply horses into man's way without knowing what's going on. without having real-time information about what is taking place. as a result of not having that kind of information, the commander who was on the ground or in that area, general dempsey and i felt very strongly that we could not put forces at risk in that situation. >> i also spoke with the defense official who put this in somewhat context. he said he couldn't get into the specific response times of those respon
intentions with iran over concerns it may flex its nuclear muscle. chris lawrence at the pentagon has the latest. what's going on here? >> wolf, just recently a commander warned no matter which country attacked iran, it would retaliate against the u.s. and israel. these exercises are designed to prove that the u.s. and israel working together could repel an attack like that. but accompanied just a couple weeks before the united states presidential election they really carry a political message as well. military commanders won't even say the word iran when it comes to these exercises. they don't have to. the israeli general in charge of planning said the fact we're practicing together is a strong message by itself. iran will see how well u.s. ships and troops can work with israeli rocket shields as they defend israel from simulated attacks from rockets, missiles and drones. the pentagon and also test new technology it helped pay for, like israel's iron dome short range missile defense system. in all the exercise will involve 3,500 u.s. troops at a cost of $30 million. they'll be traini

to the rebels in order to give them a chance against assad's regime. wolf? >> chris lawrence with that explanation. thanks for that report. the obama campaign certainly isn't wasting time hitting back. kate baldwin is monitoring, that other top stories. when's going on wolf, the president is on a fund raising swing through california. which is white house correspondent dan lothian traveling with the president and has more on this. dan, when's the latest? >> reporter: the campaign came out swinging pretty hard. the president not weighed in, reacting to romney's speech, but last night during a big fund-raiser in los angeles, the president flexing the foreign policy muscles talking about how he's winding down the war in afghanistan, gone after terrorists, how he got osama bin laden and evidence the campaign says of the president's strong leadership. as president obama honored civil rights icons chavez with a new national monument -- >> the movement he helped to lead was you stained by a generation of organizers who stood up and spoke out and urged others to do the same. >> repor
. chris lawrence is with us right now in falls church, virginia. chris, what is the situation there? >> well, we still have got a couple of hundred thousand people without power and this is primarily the reason why. take a look. i'm standing in the middle of the street. as you can tell, there is a huge tree blocking this entire street. as we swing around, you can tell it knocked down some of the telephone wires here, on the other side the power lines are down. we do -- are getting some good news, though. when you look at the big picture, some of the power companies like pepco say they expect to have power restored to 90% of their customers by tomorrow morning. other companies are reporting by thursday. now, this tree obviously came down on the roadside, not the house side. we talked to a man just a few miles away from here, who wasn't so lucky. 8:00 last night he's sitting with his son, watching tv, trying to ride out the storm, the tree outside his house literally is uprooted, splits his entire roof in half, caves in part of his house, crushes his car. today, he's very lucky to hav

south korea announced a deal with the u.s. to extend its missile range. pentagon correspondent chris lawrence joins us. how credible really is this claim? we've heard claims from north korea before. is this something that the u.s. should really be concerned about? >> bottom line, no, not right now. although north korea is working on the technology. everyone i've spoken to the pentagon say they're not close to perfecting it. alaska is about 3500 miles away from north korea, california between 5,000 and 6,000 miles. they haven't come close to testing a rocket that's gone nearly that far. they've tested this type of technology about three times. in 2006, the rocket flew about 40 seconds and exploded. in 2009, they tried to put a sat white into orbit, but that broke up over the sea well short of what they had sbeintended. and then six months ago, they tested similar technology again. it flew but again broke up over the sea. so they've had three failures it took the united states about 24 launches to perfect this technology, a third of which failed. so it's not easy to do. and north korea
bus and rail service running again within the next hour or so. bring in our chris lawrence, not far from d.c., in falls church, virginia. that's welcome news. that's quick to return from the metro service back to folks. how are people doing today? >> reporter: well, that's a big help, suzanne, you lived in this area, you know how dependent they rely on public transportation but there's still a lot of problems. nothing probably says that better than this. standing in the middle of the road and this tree shows you what it's like on some roads and trying to get by. take a look here. we swing around, you can see it's knocked down some telephone poles in the area on the other side, power lines are down. a lot of folks in this area coming up to us, telling us, over the last hour, we don't have power. overall big picture in this area, still 140,000 people without power. some tens of thousands people have had their power restored. but here's the good news. magic number of 35, 35 miles per hour, the wind has to get below that for the crews to get up on some of the ladders to start fixing the
